Propanediol, also known as propylene glycol or PDO, is a colorless organic and viscous compound. It is extracted from petroleum feedstock and renewable sources such as biodiesel and corn. It is also produced in anaerobic conditions from microorganisms such as Citrobacter, klebsiella, enterobacter, and clostridium. It is miscible in most solvents and offers several benefits, such as product fluidity, enhanced dissolving capacity, and moisturizing properties. PDO is widely used for several industrial manufacturing and research applications. It is also utilized as a solvent, humectant, and emollient and can be synthesized in a lab for further usage in personal care products. Owing to these properties, propanediol finds extensive application in manufacturing polymers, food additives, cosmetics, and personal care products.
The market is primarily driven by the increasing utilization of PDO in personal care products, cosmetics, detergents, and pharmaceuticals. Along with this, the rising product adoption in the chemical industry to manufacture polyesters such as polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT), which are used as an engineering plastic, thermoplastic, and fibers, represent another major growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the escalating demand for bio-based products due to the implementation of stringent government policies and growing environmental awareness among the masses is also providing a thrust to market growth. Besides this, propanediol is widely used as a food additive to improve the appearance, texture, flavor, and shelf life of various food items. This, coupled with the increasing utilization of PDO as antifreeze additives in automotive and solar heat systems, is further propelling the market growth. Apart from this, increasing research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players to develop novel bio-based raw materials and the rising demand for humectants-based moisturizers and other cosmetic products, especially in developing economies due to the rising disposable incomes of individuals are also creating a positive market outlook across the globe.
